Back to the first

One of the tasks in the Blogging 101 course was to try different themes. I did I tried seven or eight. In that mix I was one I tried when I first got a web site years ago.

I guess this shows that new things are not always better. I liked that old theme better than the new one so I reverted to it. I know I keep looking around at new themes.

Today was a day for nostalgia. I now have a playlist on my iPhone called nostalgia and I changed the clock display on my Mac from digital to analog.

The one thing I’m not nostalgic about is going back to the old days of Second Life in 2005 it was crazy back then. Half the male avatars you saw had a horny teen aged boy with Mommy’s credit card behind the keyboard.

And away we go #2

I’ve had web sites for a long time. This week I started the WordPress Blogging 101 online course . I found I really enjoyed blogging. At night I often waking up thinking about what I could blog about. So I choose to bite the bullet and start a this real blogging web site

Right now I want to learn more about blogging. The 28th of this month is my ten year rez date in the virtual world Second Life. Things have gotten a bit stale lately so I looking for something new.

Some of you may wonder about the word “Whooshing” in  the title of the blog. That is the sound you make when you teleport in Second Life.

Return to a Crystal Garden in Second Life

I’m always looking for great places in SL to explor photographicly this looks like one.

I first visited Crystal Gardens Estates in February 2015, so it might seem a little odd writing about it again so soon. However, the region, operated by Sandi and Mikal Beaumont, has undergone a complete redesign, and  this being the case, I was naturally drawn back to take a look.

As with my original visit, the region is divided into a set of islands, with the landing point located on the largest. Here sits a stepped pair of terraces, the uppermost of which presents a live performance stage and dance floor, while the lower features a small market space dominated by a beautiful, materials-enabled pavilion by iBi (8f8), and a view over the water to the islands on the east side of the region.

And away we go! I enjoy blogging so I started over on a new site

I’ve had web sites for a long time. This week I started the WordPress Blogging 101 online course . I found I really enjoyed blogging. At night I often waking up thinking about what I could blog about. So I choose to bite the bullet and start a this real blogging web site

Right now I want to learn more about blogging. The 28th of this month is my ten year rez date in the virtual world Second Life. For those of you that don’t know that is a long time in a virtual world.  Over the years I’ve tried dozens of virtual worlds so I am experienced with what is in the metaverse.

I’m not a tech junky who enjoys just playing with what is new and amazing for its own sake. So on my metaverse ratings you won’t see a high rating if a virtual world is just technically amazing. If it not fairly easy to use that is a negative.

A year from now I will have enough viewers that I plan sell advertisements in Second Life  so I can support my virtual world habit. Not a large financial goal but one that is fun.

You may wonder about the whooshing in the site title. I have been a resident of the virtual world Second Life for years and that is the sound you make when you teleport from one area to another. I’ve head it thousands of times. I think SL users will get it.
